    depends if/how much you want to lower it. i have 18s on mine but i don't think i will again as it made the ride a fair bit harsher

    Do you have 4 or 5 stud? Do you have any plans to lower the car?

    You dont have much choice as 5 stud wheels but there is still a wide selection out there.
